West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola is chasing Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli.

The Mirror says the highly-rated 19-year-old is frustrated at not getting regular first-team football under Jose Mourinho at the San Siro.

That has alerted West Ham although several other clubs are also courting his services.

Mourinho is not keen to sell the talented teenager as wants cover for main striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic as Inter chase a Serie A and Champions League double.
